I’m so used to using captions on my TV that I get very frustrated when streaming a movie or TV show from Netflix. So far, I have found none with subtitles or captions, although Netflix claims in their Blog that “more than 80% of the hours streamed in the US were of content with captions or subtitles available.”
According to a recent article in the San Francisco Chronicle. “Netflix may have to provide closed captions online,” a judge has ruled that federal disability laws cover businesses that serve their customers online. Netflix may appeal the ruling, but it is a step in the right direction.
Maybe I just don’t know how to turn on the subtitles, as Netflix does have a long list of movies with subtitles. Hmmm. I just went to my TV to try it out and didn’t see a way to turn on the subtitles! The movie just started, with no menu or options. Can anyone give me some tips? Thanks!!
